that particular person is fun and playful, then the odds are low he’ll find that combination in a younger woman.
Bonus: If we can do this we’ll be a lot happier with or without a man!
) But since we women can’t () change them, what we can do is better ourselves and therefore better our options from who is available—if we’ve decided that a new life partner is really what we want. And if we’re still single and happy with(in) ourselves—really, truly, pinky-swear happy, not self-denial mask-happy—and enjoy or prefer singlehood, then it’s really, truly okay to fly solo, too!
I know plenty of “older” women who are fun and playful and spontaneous and kick-ass awesome—single and otherwise.
Partly because the current financial climate doesn’t allow the latter, but also because I enjoy my freelance, nomadic lifestyle.
I tend to meet guys while I’m away travelling/working overseas and most of them are younger than me, but age really isn’t as big of a deal when you’re travelling as it is back home.
Which is why it baffles me that it’s always assumed that it’s only men who like their partners young. (I’ve always had a thing for Patrick Dempsey.) Holy. ‘I’ve dated older guys who have gone in way too hard way too soon with talking about getting married,’ agrees Katherine, 25. It didn’t take long before I moved my maximum age back down to 34.
Women get stick for being the obsessive, crazy sex, but in my experience, it’s the opposite. ‘Younger guys aren’t as forceful or bothered.’ On top of this, the older guys had no chat. My penchant for the younger lad also probably has a lot to do with the fact I’m pretty immature for my age – I was a very late developer so always feel like I’m a good few years behind everyone else.
I might be 31 but marriage, babies and mortgages are not on my radar.eating beets and drinking sad green juices all the time, but rather something much more enjoyable -- dating younger women. And when I say games, I mean things like suddenly ghosting and then texting her “wyd” after three weeks, booty calls at 2 am, you know, shit like that.“When I date a guy around my age, I assume there’s a certain level of immaturity that I’m inevitably going to have to endure,” says Mariah, 26. Yeah, sex is awesome, but unless you’re dating a nymphomaniac, you shouldn’t make sex the most important thing in the relationship.
